Customer Reviews

Great group. Great topics. Great podcast.

Hey Jeff, Cody, and Sebastien! I heard that you guys hadn’t gotten any reviews lately so I figured it was about time that I put my two cents in. I’ve been following iDB since the days of iOS 4 and JailbreakMe, but I only recently started listening to the podcast (around the time of the Apple Watch event in March). I’ve been a weekly listener ever since. I really love the way you guys go about breaking down Apple news and each of you have different opinions to bring to the table, which can make the discussions very refreshing. That being said, I would love to see a segment in the show when you guys read some of the community’s input on the topics. Your target audience is so vast, I think it would be really cool if we could write in and ask you guys questions on previous topics, or just give our opinions our own personal Apple tech. You guys have such a great dialogue between the three of you, why not extend it to us, the listeners? I think it would make both podcasts that much more awesome. If this doesn’t happen, I don’t think the podcast will be any less great than it already is, I just thought I would throw my own suggestion into the mix. Thanks for all you do. And p.s. thanks to Jeff for convincing me to switch to T-Mobile :)

Let’s (sometimes) talk iOS. Or projection TVs ;-)

I have been listening to Let’s Talk iOS for about 3 months now. And during that time, I have seen some ups and downs, but I am happy to say that it feels like recently the show is back on an upswing! Two months ago I would have given this podcast (maybe) 3 stars but now I feel it is worthy of four stars. I will endeavor to give a “fair and balanced” (just like Fox News!) review of the aspects I enjoy as well as constructive criticism on how I think the show could still be improved.

** What I like **

INTRO TUNE: I like the introduction music and the quick summary of what’s going to be covered. Sets the tone for a good podcast.

SABASTIEN’S VOICE: I’m a guy, but I seriously love Sebastien’s voice. It’s one of the reasons I listen to the podcast. His accent is fantastic and I even like when he mis-prounounces words on occasion. Even though I have no need for a new mattress, I still listen all the way through his Casper commercials! ;-)

APP REVIEWS: As we all know, discoverability is hard in the app store and the more reviews we can get, the better. I personally have 242 applications on my iPhone as I write this, so I’m a big “app guy”. Nevertheless, I have been exposed to many interesting apps by this podcast and I look forward to the app review section each week.

FRIENDLY “FIRESIDE CHAT” STYLE: I enjoy the concept of 3 friends talking tech that this podcast embodies. The relationships you guys have with each other comes through well and, although casual, it’s a definite positive aspect of your show.

TANGENTS: I find it interesting when you guys go off on tangents and talk about other aspects of your lives outside of iOS or Apple news.

REVIEWS: I really like how you have integrated reviews (the good and the bad) into your podcast. Very original approach.

JOKES: I like the jokes section. On one hand, it seems kind of “random” to have jokes (especially silly ones) in a technology podcast, but it’s fun and I admit I look forward to it. 9 out of 10 jokes I don’t find funny or have already heard them, but it’s worth it for that one really good one!

** What I think could be improved **

DEAD AIR: I remember one episode that literally started with like 5 seconds of completely dead air and then the very first sound was a long, loud *sigh* from Jeff. Not the most professional opening! Glad the intro music is back! And yes, there were times I wondered (like others) if my cellular streamed connection had cut out or the bluetooth connection to my car stereo had disconnected. I wondered why these guys weren’t using software to remove these long pauses. Sometimes, It felt like there was no editing whatsoever - the guys roll in, click “record" and what happens, happens. No fixing anything “in post”, it seemed. I know you guys have subsequently discussed this and feel it adds to the authenticity of the "friends discussing tech” atmosphere you have cultivated. I understand and agree - to a point. Yes, in real life there are natural silences. But I think you could consider cutting some of the longer ones down a little bit in post production. Lately there has been less of the really long pauses and I appreciate that you guys are trying to tighten this up a bit.

LACK OF PREPERATION: I admit I am an Apple news junkie and so perhaps I am atypical. But I found myself frequently wanting to correct you guys when you’d say something not quite accurate or just didn’t know certain things as in depth as I do. Seriously, each week there aren’t THAT many topics that you guys cover. I feel that you could sometimes just prepare better and do more fact checks and make notes so you don’t have to just go off of what you remember. Come prepared!

GHOST OF JEFF: For quite a number of the podcasts, Jeff seemed really to fade away to the point that he didn’t seem to be enthusiastic to be there. He would frequently need to be prompted by Cody or Sebastien and asked questions; if you asked Jeff a question he would answer it. But if he wasn’t prompted or questioned, he’d often stay quiet for a long time and let Seb and Cody drive the show. I think others have pointed this out as well, so I won’t belabor the point, but I’d like to see Jeff try to be more assertive and enthusiastic. I feel he is starting to get his mojo back more recently.

APP REVIEWS: I already said this was one of my favorite aspects, so why is it also here in the things that could be improved section. It’s because if this is a standing section, ALL the hosts (I’m looking mainly at you Jeff, but even Seb once in a while) need to come *prepared* with app reviews. Each and every week. Consistently. Don’t let Cody have to do all the heavy lifting in this department.

JOKES: Similar to the above, this is a case where not all of the hosts come prepared with jokes each week. Cody always kills it, at least with quantity. Seb does a pretty good job too. But Jeff complains that he doesn’t like reusing jokes he finds on websites and prefers to do his own. He also chastises Cody and Seb for not taking the “15 minutes” to write their own jokes. Yet, consistently it is Jeff who neither takes the “15 minutes” each week to create his own jokes or bothers to find better existing jokes. Practice what you preach, Jeff, and come prepared with jokes each week one way or the other.

Lastly, let me say that this is the first podcast review I have EVER written. I would not have done it if Sebastien didn’t consistently ask for more reviews. His repetitive asking for more reviews DOES work - I’m proof of that! While I know my review is far to long to be read on air, I do hope you read it and remember I have seen improvements and to some extent across all of the constructive criticism areas above. I do listen religiously every Monday and I only “lecture" because I care and want this to be an even better podcast than it already is. I am a tough but fair evaluator and I hope to be able to update to a 5 star review in the near future. Keep up the quality work guys!

Long time subscriber

I'm a longtime subscriber to this podcast. I visit the site daily and Sebastian and Cody are always fun to listen to. While I will miss Jeff's insight, I will not miss him talking me into buying tweaks that I'll never use (ie Prowidgets).
